Kawaii Lunar New Year Picks

Posted on


Hung hay fat choy! Lunar New Year is today and we’re celebrating the Year of the Tiger in kawaii-style!

Lunar New Year kawaii plush

Send a loved one a charming New Year care package from Noodoll’s Lunar New Year section (UK). I recommend the Ricetiger, Ricebao dumpling, Lunar New Year sticker set, and lucky pineapple greeting card.

Year of the Tiger kawaii sticker sheet

My favorite local Japanese artist, Tomoko Alfonso AKA Catnip Art Studio (US) has designed a sticker sheet just for the year of the tiger. I love that these handmade stickers are water resistant, the perfect kawaii-touch for a water bottle or bento box. If you live in Oregon, you can pick up her stickers and other art at Oyatsupan Bakers.

Hello Kitty Year of the Tiger plush

You can commemorate 2022 with a Hello Kitty Year of the Tiger 2022 plush at Sanrio (US). I love that the year is printed on her bow in gold, which matches her little gold paws. There’s a My Melody plush too.

Sumikko Gurashi Year of the Tiger plush

Rilakkuma and Sumikko Gurashi are ready for Lunar New Year at Cuteness (EU).

Rilakkuma Year of the Tiger plush

Korilakkuma is wearing a little white tiger suit and I love the tiny tiger sitting on top. I also just learned that “shopping cart” in Dutch is “winkelwagen” and I am delighted!

Lunar New Year partyware

I was pleasantly surprised that Target (US) has an entire product section devoted to Lunar New Year. I’ll be picking up these cute tiger plates for our celebration this year.

Lunar New Year Barbie doll

They even have a beautiful special edition Barbie Signature Lunar New Year doll. You can also find it on Amazon if you’re not in the US.

Year of the Tiger kawaii clip art

Decorate your home by creating some DIY decorations using this truly kawaii clipart from CockatooDesign. There are so many characters in this pack; I love the little tiger family.

Lunar New Year printables

If you are introducing the Lunar New Year to kids, you can download fun, free printable activities from In the Playroom. You’ll find more DIY ideas in Marceline’s recent Year of the Tiger Crafts & Activities post too.

I hope this new year brings you luck and kawaii to you and your family!
